Honda Malaysia has introduced the CR-V Black Edition as another variant in the line-up of its popular SUV model1. The Black Edition is a CR-V 1.5L TC-P 2WD variant wearing the Crystal Black Pearl exterior colour.
In addition to that, it bears all dark finishes such as the Black Front Grille with Honda Signature LED Headlights, Black Front Bumper Garnish, and Black Rear Bumper Garnish. These are complemented by 18″ alloy wheels finished in high-quality piano black.
True to its name, the black theme continues in the cabin. The steering wheel, 7″ Interactive TFT meter and air conditioning garnish are all done up in piano black. Furthermore, the centre console, dashboard and door trim of the Black Edition sport a black wood garnish while the new headlining is accented by black finishing. The all-black theme is also carried through to the seats, with the front seats bearing embroidered “Black Edition” label.
“The CR-V was the first Completely Knocked-Down (CKD) model in Honda Malaysia’s line-up in 2003. Since then, the CR-V has consistently been well accepted by the Malaysian market with more than 108,000 units sold to date. The 5th Generation CR-V, which was launched in 2017, has maintained the positive sales momentum with a significant contribution of over 43,000 units sold to the total sales of the model. The CR-V continues to exceed our expectations with encouraging sales and is dominating the Non-National SUV segment with 24% of market share as of August 2021. The popularity of the CR-V attests to the model’s attractive design, elegant interior and exceptional driving performance. In addition, the CR-V never ceased to impress the market with its innovative features, which it was the first model to introduce the Next Generation Advanced Safety Technology – Honda SENSING. In view of the good market acceptance, we introduced the CR-V Black Edition to provide more options for our customers who prefer an SUV with a full package of spaciousness, comfort, safety, performance and next-level aesthetic,” said Honda Malaysia Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Ms. Madoka Chujo.
Powering this 5th Generation CR-V is the same 1.5L VTEC turbocharged engine with an output of 193 PS and 243 Nm of torque, which are figures higher than a 2.4L non-turbo engine.
Further, the CR-V includes advanced features such as Remote Engine Start2 which allows you to start the engine via the smart key and have the air conditioning switched on before you enter the car. As an SUV that is known for its large cargo space, the CR-V makes transporting goods hassle-free. The Hands-Free Power Tailgate2 feature also gives you added convenience to access the cargo area. This feature is activated with a motion of the foot near the hands-free access sensor under the rear bumper.
The Honda CR-V Black Edition is priced at RM161,913.993.
